Interviews Gone Wrong…Horribly, Horribly Wrong

For your weekly dose of schadenfreude, we direct you to the 50+ comments on Ask A Manager’s “what was your worst interview?” contest. The contest is over, so you won’t win anything by submitting your own story, but reading through the entries is a great giggle.

There are many tales of people being called in only to learn that the position was filled days ago.

Tales of inappropriate questions.

Many, many tales of mis-listed jobs (the “marketing manager” position that turned out to be an entry-level sales job).

Hoo boy.

There’s also the stories of interviewees who know they messed up. Lots of people arriving late. Lots of inappropriate jokes over dinner interviews (seriously, don’t drink at one of these things). And the interviewee who, as her potential future boss was describing her responsibilities, she replied, “Um, that sounds really boring.” Oops.
